The Graph above shows you the gap we are trying to bridge with these young drivers using the Street Talk programme.
The information illustrates how quickly the intellectual (Driving) skills are learnt and how the socio / emotional skills are lagging so far behind.
This is why the street talk programme is so focused on those socio / emotional skillsand it’s effects on driving in the first part of the programme in sessions 2 and 3.
